I'm looking for a way to wirelessly send audio from the AVR in my main room to a stereo receiver in my dining room that powers my patio speakers. This is in a condo that I rent so pulling wires is out of the question. Something that utilizes my WIFI network would be ideal. Any ideas? A bunch of people have mentioned Sonos but that seems like more than I need.

From what source(s)? There are solutions, but they're not "great". If you're streaming audio from somewhere else to the AVR anyway, a $99 Apple Airport Express is a great way to add AirPlay to any receiver.

Airplay would work for the audio from my ipod which is what I'm doing now. But, what I really want to do is take my zone 2 outputs from my main AVR and send it to my dining room receiver. That way I can take whatever source I want be it my media server, Blu Ray player, TV, etc. and send it to the patio speakers. I have everything doubled up to the analog inputs so I know I can get all that through the zone 2 outputs. I just need some way to "beam" it across the house if you will.

Seems like two of these would be a decent solution:

http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&productId=11035425&langId=-1&k_id=7c6bfffd-2d82-2028-ba9a-00006c2612c9&XID=O:HWSBTA2W:dg_gglpla&kpid=11035425&XID=O:hwsbta2w:dg_gglsrch:pla&cagpspn=pla#features

It indicates that they'd work for this purpose, but I'd like to see the manual or other evidence that two of them would properly talk to each other...
